Lee Grant quotes (15)

A lot of very, very big stars were going down and not being seen or heard from again. Kirk took a huge chance in putting a blacklisted writer's name on the screen and somehow or other, he survived it, like he survives everything.
Lee Grant   Category:

Every actor in the room honored Sidney for being there so many years before. And everybody was so moved to be at a place where history was being made again. It was tangible.
Lee Grant   Category:

I am proud of Kirk. I think he drums to his own drummer in every way.
Lee Grant   Category:

I did my very first film with Kirk in Detective Story when he was the greatest, greatest star in the world. I fell in love with him, had a crush on him then.
Lee Grant   Category:

I don't think I fit the Marilyn Maxwell mode.
Lee Grant   Category:

I know what you go through when you learn someone close to you has died.
Lee Grant   Category:

I've been married to one Marxist and one Fascist, and neither one would take the garbage out.
Lee Grant   Category: Marriage

It's a very good feeling to be around a man who thinks women are juicy.
Lee Grant   Category:

Kirk is a man, and he loves it. He loves women.
Lee Grant   Category:

My instinct was that it was Sidney's childhood in the Bahamas that gave him the fearlessness to fight racism. So this documentary was a kind of rounding out of what had begun in that scene in In the Heat of the Night.
Lee Grant   Category:

People break down after a couple of hours. All the defenses go down, and there's a kind of communication that if I spent 20 years in a living room with one of these people, I would never, never know as much about them as I do in that one day.
Lee Grant   Category:

This is our lives. The way to give it dignity is to tell the truth.
Lee Grant   Category:

What goes on between a father and a son, which is usually such a private matter, is that they are able to be honest with each other, and be honest with me, as a director. It's just remarkable.
Lee Grant   Category:

When I became a director, I wanted to convince a very reluctant Sidney into allowing me to go on the journey of his life. Sidney had gone ahead of every other African American actor.
Lee Grant   Category:

You don't need a love scene to show love.
